Dx Digest: Adapting to Survive: Rapid Testing Strategies with COVID's Chief Pathology Advisor.

Nathan Sharpe By Nathan Sharpe

In this episode of Diagnostics Digest, a CM Life Science series discussing trends and insights into the diagnostics market, I speak with David Wells, Chief Executive Officer of the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).

With over 21,000 members in 74 countries, IBMS is the leading professional body for scientists, support staff and students in the field of biomedical science. For over 100 years, it has been dedicated to the promotion, development and delivery of excellence in biomedical science within all aspects of healthcare, and to providing the highest standards of service to patients and the public.

We discuss the NHS response to rapid testing, the importance of the IBMS and its members as an organisation and what's to come during its biggest conference. Until June 2021 David led the NHS England and NHS Improvement Pathology consolidation programme, seeking to deliver efficient, high quality and innovative pathology services across England.

Now appointed Chief Executive of the IBMS, as an expert advising on policy, strategy and technology deployment, he shares fascinating insights from his experiences at the helm of the biggest healthcare challenge the world has ever seen.
